Ken Brown


Ken Brown (born 9 January 1957) is a Scottish former European Tour golfer who now works for the BBC as a golf broadcaster and writer. He won four times on the European Tour and in his best season in 1978 he finished fourth on the European Tour Order of Merit at the age of 21. He was an outstanding but largely unfulfilled talent; the last of his four top ten finishes on the Order of Merit came when he was just 26. He appeared in the Ryder Cup in 1977, 1979, 1983, 1985 and 1987, and had a 4-9-0 win-loss-tie record, including two wins and two losses in singles matches. His playing career was terminated by injury when he was in his mid thirties.
